The “Adding Experiences’ Project” consists on a mobility Project for young people. It is comprised on the “people’s mobility for learning purposes (KA1) of the Erasmus+ Programme. Specifically, it is an activity of European Voluntary Service of 7 months of duration, it took place in Spain, specifically in Alcorisa (Teruel). In this project participated two volunteers of different countries: a 29-year old from Czech Republic and a 22-year old Ukrainian. The objective of this European Voluntary Service’ activity is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of people with intellectual disability or development disability and to promote their social inclusion throughout the participation of volunteers in different activities, programmes and services with disabled people. Specifically, the young volunteers have worked giving supports in the different activities, programmes and services of Kalathos Foundation in Alcorisa (Teruel): occupational center and day-care, summer programme, voluntary work camp, sociocultural and leisure activities and a young voluntary programme. Likewise, volunteers have developed their own initiatives in the Foundation, as a photos, encaustic and yoga workshops. In the tutorials planned along the activity, the volunteers have been orientated on the reflection of the learnings acquired throughout the voluntary work and experience of the voluntary service. In addition to the already mentioned objectives, we wanted to approach the intellectual disability, the European notion, their values and the importance of voluntary work not only to European volunteers but also to other people of our village and region by doing altogether activities with other young volunteers and the spread of the EVS with talks in high-schools, press, media, etc.
